Same error as everyone else. Loved the game though! I always love games like this and Linear RPG, that take the piss out of RPG's and their grinding but manage to make it fun anyway.

my error:

Yeah, I think I know exactly what caused that bug now (One simple misnumber).
Since I don't currently have access to my dropbox, just change the entry for node 57 in the turboquest.txt file as follows:

&0057,101,11/05,0056/0057/0059/0057
@26/26/26,106/107/108/109,00,020,000
#Cliff^s/Shadow;0

This should fix the 1/0 problem.
However, there is a mapping error I found while fixing this. Please also change the entry for node 90 as follows:

&0090,101,04/12,0127/0090/0091/0090
@40/39/39,064/065/146/170,00,020,000
#Poisoned/Fields;0

Sorry about that. I probably should have checked better and turned it in late. Sad

BUT I FIXED IT NOW SO IT'S COOL RIGHT GUYS?  Who, Me? /exaggeratedguilt

An interesting entry. I agree that there could be more meaningful decisions to be made. Right now all you really do is move from square to square, going back to heal and then clear more squares.

It's still entertaining for a short while.

I thought the complete lack of meaningful decisions was the most interesting part of the game. Sure, I'm just walking along a line to an identical rectangle with some words on it... But I really want to know where these identical rectangles are leading! The subtle changes in color and the names of each area are really all I need to go on a grand adventure. And, sadly, the combat is about as complex as most RPGs I've played. There's something horrifically addicting about filling up those little bars.

My play was cut short by the well known divide by zero error, but maybe I'll fix those nodes and go back in. Must see it through, after all.

Yes, that gets at the pun in the game itself, but if within those constraints one wishes the 'game' to be engaging there needs to be meaningful (and perceivable) choices, just because everything but the core mechanic of an mmorpg is stripped does not mean there aren't interesting choices of how to risk your resources or spend your attention, to balance risk vs reward in those kinds of games. - otherwise why make it interactive at all? Unless it is only meant as a one time joke.

This game is ridiculously compelling for such a simple concept.  Even though I got the divide by zero error and can guess exactly what the rest of the game is like, I've got this incredibly strong urge to go back to it having applied the fix and see it through to the end.

And I loved the place names, and the way they managed to make those simple boxes feel like actual places, with histories and secrets of their own.

I would just like to thank everyone who responded in this thread for their feedback and opinions, they really helped make the game better/keep the project going.

I should be getting Game Maker reinstalled any day now, so I'll probably open up a thread in the Devlog forum when that happens. First thing I'll fix that n/0 bug and upload the fixed version to the dropbox server, then the adding of features and expansion of options shall occur.

I thought I had this, but it turned out it was just taking a very long time to start loading.

Liked: Cliffs of Insanity Hand Thumbs Up Left Super simple casual gameplay. Great visual, I really liked the enemies flying out of the node as they died.

Disliked: Very few options. I know it's mainly a passive experience but a few classes and/or upgrade choices would have been nice.

Conclusion: Great fun. I know a few people who would love this and I'll be recommending it to them.

Holy {static} 18 people voted for this game. Shocked Wow. That's, uh, actually quite a few. Gratitude. It is yours. Gentleman

I fixed the game-breaking bugs (and one that wasn't but deprived the player of money) and replaced the file on the link a couple days back but forgot to write about it for some reason.

I am beginning work on a class select-y type thing this weekend, as well as a much less linear campaign file. And maybe (quite improbably) an editor so it doesn't take an entire month just to finalize everything. When one or more of these things happens, there will be a thread in the devlogs forum to announce it in.

Just please do not take away from the stylistic simplicity of the game! The absurd minimalism is what makes the entire game!

First time poster; this was one of my favorite games in the contest.  Coming from a past WoW player, I felt right at home with the grinding.

Unlike a lot of people on this thread, I think this game would be more fun if it were more complicated.  When I think about "how could we make this idea a mainstream hit?", you need to have more interaction.  There are a lot of obvious things you could do, with equipment, party members, decisions to make (like Dungeons of Fayte), etc...  I know you want to keep it simple, but my mind likes to go nuts.

I also like the idea I heard suggested above where you can make many variations of this game.  The base could be used for a standard fantasy RPG (as it is now), but also easily adapted to other genres: sci-fi, old west, etc..  Lots of possibilities.

Anyway, very impressive work.  I'm keeping an eye on this thread for future updates.

Well, I finally made enough progres to warrant an update, so Turbo Quest will now be relayed through its devlog thread here.

New, improved, and somewhat experimental version atm, with zero added content but lots of nice tweaks. Thank you all for your past, present, and hopefully future feedback and support.
